My Message


Will you help me rethink irrigation projects in Lao?

After working 8 years as a Project Manager in "Corporate Calgary" I took a break to see the world, which has led to this current opportunity. Volunteering with Cuso International for 12 months, I can use my (freaking amazing) engineering skills to improve the livelihood of smallholder farmers in Southeast Asia. And I need your help to make it happen.

Did you know this isn't the first time I've been overseas working in development? I had a great experience volunteering for Engineers Without Borders in Zambia, working in a honey factory to stabilize production. Today, things at that honey company are buzzing along (I did that on purpose!), and they are even selling their product in Canada. But I digress…

By fundraising $2000 before June I'll secure a position in Lao working with the Department of Agriculture to prioritize which small-farm irrigations projects get funded. Your donation of $10 or more gets you a charitable tax receipt, and gives me the chance to influence Lao's development as a country. Woot.

Show you care. Click the donate button in the top right to help deserving farmers in Lao succeed (and to receive lots of good karma and gratitude from me).

This will be my second international development opportunity, and it's with CUSO International (formerly Canadian University Services Overseas). Basically, CUSO places volunteers with professional skills into development positions where they can do the most good. 

I need your help raising money. Click that donate button and CUSO will get me to Lao, where I can really make a difference in another person's livelihood. Don't forget, you get a tax receipt (American or Canadian) for $10 or more.
